Upon firing, the Shocktrain will unleash all charges that are currently stored in the weapon (a maximum of 5), with damage increasing for more charges being loaded. This mechanism is similar to the Trebuchet in that this weapon can charge while not firing, thus increasing the damage the longer you wait after firing.
This weapon has the unique ability to be able to hit multiple robots simultaneously, with a range of up to 150 meters for each subsequent robot that is hit. When the original robot is hit, each robot within 150 meters of the target will also be hit with that same projectile, but with reduced damage for each subsequent robot of 50%, severely hindering its damage upon the next robot hit.
This weapon is extremely dangerous to robots due to this weapon's "charging", making it as deadly as the Zeus or Trebuchet (but with target lock and the ability to hit multiple targets). This, combined with its amazingly short reload times, can severely dent a medium or heavy robot. Thus, it is extremely common to see 3 of these weapons mounted on a Fujin, Haechi, or Bulgasari to do its maximum potential with over 45,000 damage per fully charged burst, and its average DPM at level 12 for one of these weapons is about 116,250, which makes them deadly even at close ranges like 300 meters.
To use this weapon to its maximum potential, it should be treated as a heavy weapon due to its "charge before fire" mechanism and its medium-range at 500 meters, equal to the Tulumbas. However, mounting this weapon on the Doc is not recommended as this weapon's reload time is faster than its Quick Draw ability cooldown time.
